ISABEL MAXWELL HANCOCK 



DEDICATION 



For her Southern smile and warmheartedness which 
helped to smooth out many of the wrinkles of our 
school life; for her never flagging interest and under- 
standing; for boundless depths of energy and spirit, 
all of which have so enriched our years at Abbot, we, 
the Senior Class of 194£>, most fondly dedicate our 
yearbook to IVliss Hancock

MARGUERITE CAPEN HEARSEY 
A.B. Hollins: M.A. Radcliffe; Ph.D. Yale 

Principal 



In chapel when I would glance at the faculty 
seated together on the platform during the 
morning service in which we all took part, it 
would often occur to me how very much thev 

« t. 

added to our dailv life at Abbot. In the class- 
room where they extended their knowledge 
to us, on the sports field, and in the offices, I 
often marveled at their unending patience, 
genuine interest, and unfailing kindness. 



Often in the evenings we would go to their 
rooms where they would listen to our prob- 
lems and troubles, and in complete friend- 
liness give us the advice we so much needed. 
From that very first dav when we came to 
Abbot as timid Preps until the final great 
moment when we were ready to leave, as 
alumnae, the presence of the Abbot faculty 
filled us with a sense of security. And so as I 
sat in chapel glancing often at the members 
of the faculty and at the portraits of their 
predecessors on the walls around us, it seemed 
as though these earlier ones smiled down in 
commendation and in thankfulness that their 
work was being carried on by strong successors.

CLASS SONG 

We are the class of '46 
With purpose clear and true 
Our yellow banner waves on high 
Behind the Abbot blue. 

Marching together ever on 
Throughout our future davs 
And loyally united be 
With "46 always. 



[14 



V-J Day! What did thai mean to nicy . . . . If meant a 
deep, inexpressible thankfulness — a silent happiness that 
could not have been put into words. . .and it meant too 
that I among thousands of other school girts was to be a 
senior in a world struggling to create and maintain the 
precious peace it had won.... As these thoughts run 
through my mind, I remember the changes which war 
brought to school. . . .1 remember the stairway rush when 
an air-raid warning sounded. . .the bus-less trips to 
Boston for "Twelfth Night" and "Macbeth" . . .the nights 
of bandage-rolling .. .and knitting ... .oleo-d and meat- 
less days. . .and abundance of "free" mail and V-mrw.il. . . 
wonderful, wonderful "free-days" to make up for the war- 
restricted Spring vacation when books were put away for 
twenty-four whole hours! . . .all these things and yet, noiv, 
they seem unimportant compared to that intangible thing 
which has made my life here of greater significance . . . .1 
have learned so much more than Latin, chemistry or history 
. . .1 have learned not only to appreciate such things but 
to appreciate the inherent dignity of life, and of every 
human being. . . .Somehow, the half -thoughts and visions 
of the future which had come with me as a prep, have 
sharpened until they stand out clearly. . . until they have 
become a high star, a goal. . . . Above all, I have learned how 
to become a finer, more effective person, and to that person 
I must never fail to strive to remain true.

Those who come after 

This year we felt our first 
tinge of authority and at the 
same time became conscious of a 
new sense of responsibility. It 
seemed wonderful to go to Bos- 
ton to see Hamlet and other 
plays, and it was most impres- 
sive to take the places of the 
seniors at the table as they 
rushed off somewhere to spend 
the day. 




We shall never forget what a 
job it was to organize the ba- 
zaar but the goal inspired us to 
do our utmost. Our efforts were 
matched by the cooperation of 
the whole school. 

We still quiver remembering 
the mornings we sauntered up 
the aisle in chapel with knees 
shaking to give "the News." 
Nevertheless, it was a member 



[36] 



Senior-Mids . . . 

of our "stunning" class who 
was chosen to be sculptured by 
the illustrious Madame Silver- 
cruvs. 

■ 

The night of the Senior play 
when we were the guests of the 
Seniorsand marched into Davis 
Hall singing our class song, and 
wearing our lovely blue class 
sweaters, for the first time, it 




suddenlv came over us that soon 
they would be leaving us as 
graduates, and that made us 
very sad. 

As commencement time 
neared, we were solemnlv in- 

m 

itiated into the sacred confines 
of the Senior Parlor. We knew 
then that our very happy Senior 
Mid days were about over.

. . . Junior-Mids . . . 

This year was a most import- 
ant one in regard to the Junior 
Mids. In becoming a separate 
and individual class, we have 
gained many privileges which 
made up for the first disappoint- 
ment we experienced at our 
being separated from the Class 
of '47. We felt ourselves to be 
on somewhat the same level

the dubious privilege of giving 
"the News" in chapel. 

Next vear. we shall official lv

Class of '48. but we shall look 
back on '46. glad to have made 
the move toward the individual 
importance of the Junior-Mids.

. . . Juniors . . . 

We have had a lot of fun this 
year, and at the same time we 
have accomplished something to 
look back upon. 

We helped the Seniors with 
their Christmas dolls for the 
Hindman Settlement, demon- 
strating versatility in the art of 
dressmaking! Going from dress- 
making to dramatics we were 




said to have displayed some 
skill on Stunt Night and to- 
gether with that of the Preps 
furnished laughs for the re- 
mainder of the school. We con- 
fess that we were mighty envious 
on the night of the Prom as we 
watched from the outside the 
upper classes having the time of 
their lives dancing. Neverthe- 
less we managed to take it all

very well and consoled ourselves 
with a party of our own without 
any men! 

Again we joined our efforts 
with those of the Preps and 
raised over a hundred dollars 
worth of canned goods for the 
European Relief collection. AVe 
went about the task on our own 
initiative and raised the gift. 
I guess we feel rather proud to 



mimiffli

Thus we have alreadv become

we are looking forward eagerly 
to next year when we can proud- 
ly call ourselves upper classmen.

We are the Prep Class and 
believe it or not we enjoyed our- 
selves even in that low bracket. 
At the beginning of the year we 
telt young , new and over- 
looked" by our worldly-wise 
"elders," but later we became a 
definite asset to Abbot. For 
weren't the Seniors dependent 




on us for making wardrobes for 
their Christmas dolls? And 
which class was it (along with 
the Juniors) who brought 90 
cans of food to send overseas? 
And who was it that contributed 
so much talent to the new "rec" 
room, sports, and lolanthef Why, 
the Preps! Keep your eyes on 
the class of '49!

Student Government 

One of the leading organizations 
at Abbot is the Student Government 
Association. It is through this or- 
ganization that we begin to learn the 
art of self-government. Student Gov- 
ernment collaborating with Miss 
Hearsev and a facultv committee 
has charge of the Rating System. 
The system encourages and rewards 
special effort in good citizenship. 

Through the able leadership of 
"Ginny" Finney, helpful improve- 
ments have been incorporated into 
our school life. It might well be said 
that the smooth running of the 
school is partly due to the success 
with which Student Government ex- 
ecutes its own program. 

Student Government prides itself 
in that it works with the adminis- 
tration.

Abbot Christian 
Association 

The Abbot Christian Association 
is one of the best loved organiza- 
tions at Abbot. Its first program of 
the year is the festive fun-making 
Old Girl-New Girl party. During the 
year this group of students held 
three vesper services — conducted 
two morning chapel services — spon- 
sored the gift of the Christinas dolls 
for the Hindman Settlement. A Mer- 
rie Christmas party was given for a 
group of Andover Children — Santa 
Claus . . . shining tree . . . and gifts for 
all... 

The Red Cross Drive was carried 
out under the direction of A.C.A. 
with notable success. Baskets of 
fruit went to the Andover Old Folks 
Home. 

The Abbot Christian Association 
quietly binds together our efforts to 
help others.

"Well, let's vote — thumbs up or

too much poetry." "But we must 
have an editorial!" Such phrases are 
typical of what goes on behind the 
closed door of the small corner room 
on the fourth floor! As the material 
comes in, it is read by the Courant 
Board at Friday night meetings; 
sorted and then voted upon. Next 
comes the preparation for printing 
and the scurrying before the dead- 
line. Calm at last ! and the board 
waits patiently for the day when their 
product is thrust into the mailboxes. 
They can view this product with 
pride because once more Cou rant's 
standard as the literary voice of the 
school has been upheld.

the engraver who helped them lay 
out their vearbook. Later on, there 
appears Mr. Cole at their meetings 
who soon takes over the printing. 

Sometimes the table is littered 
with drawing paper, paste and scis- 
sors as the dummv vearbook grows 
from a dream to a reality. 

From all that material spread out 
on the table, an all inclusive year- 
book of life at Abbot was produced.

" IOLANTHE PRINCIPALS " 
Sommer, Mastrangelo. Sullivan, Hogan, Power, G. Wright 



The choir is indeed devoted to its 
work which is under the direction of 
Miss Friskin. Two beautiful songs 
are sung each Sunday at vespers. 
They do not seem to mind the prac- 
tice time, for when the finished pro- 
duct is called for. the choir is readv 
to give a good imitation of angel 
voices blended together in harmony. 
The whole school appreciates the 
music the choir brings to us. 

Fidelio seems to be a lot of fun. 
especially this year, for instead of 
giving the two concerts with Exeter 
and Governor Dummer. exciting 
though these events may be. they 
joined up with Phillips Academy 
and presented a Gilbert and Sullivan 

"Tolanthe." Every \Yednesdav and 
Saturday the Abbot "chorus" would 
go tripping off to Phillips to rehearse 
with the men's chorus. Once Abbot 



had become used to the much louder 
noise the boys made in their singing, 
the girls let go, and gave plenty of 
competition. 

Fidelio was engaged in several 
other projects during the year; for 
example, the songs for the Christmas 
service which came the Sunday be- 
fore the holidays began. We shall 
never forget the lovely 'Shepherd 
Song" as sung by Helen Mastrange- 
lo, the only Prep member of Fidelio. 
Then, too. Fidelio took part in the 
commencement recital. These activi- 
ties served to ease the strain of the

Whatever success Fidelio has

who directs the great chorus of the 
famous Worcester Festival. 

The organizational duties which 
are involved in running Fidelio are 
taken care of by the student officers,

"Importance of Being Earnest" 

Drama at Abbot 




ABBOT DRAMATIC SOCIETY 
Tread tray, A. Flowers, Potter, Hogan, President; Graf, (hirers, Kolins 



Abbot Dramatic Society has had a 
wonderful year. Who could ever for- 
get the wonderful parties in Mrs. 
Gray's apartment, and the gay cele- 
brations in the studio; long, hilari- 
ous, grim, inspired, depressed re- 
hearsals of Oscar \Yilde's "The Im- 
portance of Being Earnest," when 
everyone tried to become a profes- 
sional amateur. The play was lots of 
fun with manv memorable incidents 
connected to it by much laughter — 
enough so that it was an amusing 
play from the stand-point of both 
the cast and the audience. 

In everyone's opinion, "Friend 
Hannah" was one of the most suc- 
cessful Senior plays we have witness- 
ed. Remember how bewitching Luty 
was in her bonnet, and how utterly 



[50] 



heartbreaking was her performance 
as wife of the newly made King 
whom she renounced all claim upon 
in exchange for a lonely life. Laurie 
enacted a splendid King for Luty to 
renounce! The supporting players 
more than filled all requirements — 
Patty, Micky, Frannie, Louise, Pol- 
ly, Nancy, and all the others who 
took their parts so well. But what 
would we have done without our un- 
matchable, indefatigable Mrs. Gray 
to make us into what we were that 
night. The real success is Mrs. Gray's. 

At commencement - time Draper 
Dramatics presented "The Taming 
of the Shrew." The gay comedy 
fitted in well with the festive mood 
of final ceremonies of the closing of 
school when we would all be leaving 
for the summer holiday.

Athletics are an important part of 
Abbot life. It is the goal of the Abbot 
Athletic Association to encourage 
interest in sports, and to uphold a 
standard of fine sportsmanship. 

For competition, the school is 
divided into two teams, the Gar- 
goyles and the Griffins. These teams 
engage in friendly rivalry all the 
year round from the first hockey 
game in October until the last base- 
ball is tossed out for the last game in 
June. 

On Field Day — in November and 
in May — the teams play hard to roll 
up points for their side. "Somebody 
has to win!" So we all enjoy the 
victory . . . Gargoyle or Griffin . . . for 
the game's the thing.

Sports at Abbot 



During the hockey season the teams worked hard to 
learn new pointers. Throughout, there were very close 
games between the two teams. "When Field Day arrived 
the Griffins came out victorious but onlv after a hard 
fight was staged by the Gargoyles. 

After Field Day. the varsity team experienced a 
thrill when they went off in their snappy blazers to 
play in a hockey conference in Boston. This was "a first 
time" event in the historv of the Abbot Athletic Asso- 
ciation. 

The intricate techniques and skills of basketball were 
this fall demonstrated by a capable returnee. "Butch" 
Stevens, '44, who carried on until Miss Hunt, our regu- 
lar instructor, had recovered from an illness. With hard 
work both teams became proficient enough to give the 
rival cheering sections a lot to make a noise about. 

The season lasted on into the cold of earlv November. 
Even though they shivered and shook the players made

basketball one of the chief excite- 
ments of the fall. 

On the afternoon of Field Dav in 
November there was a battle roval 
on the tennis courts. Miss Humes, 
perched high up in the referee's box, 
witnessed a match between "Mouse" 
Morse, Gargovle, and Marv Emerv, 
Griffin. It was a superb exhibition! 
Marv Emerv, Griffin, won the match. 

When the cold weather forced us 
indoors, the school was divided into 
two groups — modern dance and gym. 
Modern dance meant to some that 
thev were destined to become Martha 

i. 

Grahams, but to the realists the 
whole thing was confused with the 
matter of one's "figger." 

For our winter's gym, we were in- 
troduced to "tumbling." We did 
astonishing things such as we had 
0-O-O-ed at when encountered un- 
der the Big Top. And there was preci- 
sion marching. We liked that too. 

During the war years riding was 
given up. But this session the nearby 
stables of the Rocky Hill Riding 
Academv were fitted out with some 
good mounts, and we enjoyed them. 
Brightly colored fall days found us 
on the trails, and as soon as spring 
was in the air and the "sign here for 
riding" slips appeared on the bulletin 
board, we were oft' again into the 
flowering countryside. 

When the snow came we rushed to 
the ski room to prepare our skis for 
hard usage. The beginners were in- 
itiated to the sport on "suicide 
slope" in front of Sunset while the 
experienced ones dared Chapin's hill 




[55] 




and the more daring. Prospect hill. 
In the meantime the Seniors worked 
up their technique for Intervale 
when the moment should at last 
come. 

And we skated. The tennis courts 
would be flooded for us when the tem- 
perature was just right for smooth 
freezing. Sometimes for variety we 
went over to Rabbit Pond. 

Archery has been resumed now as 
a major sport. Many girls partici- 
pated in this new activity so that by 
Field Day. it was thrilling to watch 
the shooting, and wait to know 
whether the bull's-eves were scored 
for Gargoyle or Griffin!

the circles for hurling disks, and the

broad jump pit were put in place 
on the hockey field for the exciting 
events of spring term Field Day. 

The girls got into form pretty 
quickly once the daily practice be- 
gan, and they amazed the spectators 
by their speed, accuracy, and general 
prowess. It was a good show. 

When Spring came the rabid base- 
ball fans trotted out for "warming 
up" so as to be ready for the first 
practice. They would get very 
"tough" for the occasion and yell 
'That's a-looking 'urn over" and 
"bat'er up, kid," for realism. Any- 
way, "Dem Bums" couldn't have 
received a more loyal welcome than 
the Griffins and the Gargoyles gave 
our teams when the games got goin'.

May -1 — Abbot's Birthday! Brightly decorated booths to tempt away your 
spare cash. . and the World Student Service Fund piled up as the festiv- 
ities of Bazaar Day mounted. . generous patrons. . .reckless spending 
. . . grand totals ! 

Every Now and Then — The Forums or should we say the Fora. . . 
righteous indignation politely expressed ... a shaky speaker... a loud- 
speaker. . a self-repeater. . an automatic bouncer-upper on all sides of 
the question. . and Burns' epic statement: "But the White man took 
the initiative!'' And so he did.

* More than a thousand year books have borne the 
imprint of New England's Master Craftsmen. 

Many business managers and editors of year books 
in the school and college field have written us in 
appreciation of our cooperation and helpful sug- 
gestions. This, of course, has been very gratifying 
to us and we are looking forward to the years 
ahead with the same spirit of helpfulness to the 
business managers and editors of the future.
